#CharityTuesday: Malaria Awareness

Did you know that April 25th was World Malaria Day 2012? Many of us have watched the appeals on programmes such as Children in Need but to get more information its well worth a visit www.worldmalariaday.org.

The Novartis Malaria Initiative 

For over a decade, the Novartis Malaria Initiative has been a pioneer in the fight against malaria. Focused on access, treatment, R&D and capacity building, the initiative is the largest access-to-medicine program within Novartis measured by the number of patients reached annually. Together with our partners, and with our continued patient-centric approach, we are committed to the common goal of malaria elimination.

They have brought out a children's Friends Against Malaria toolkit so we can share our awareness of malaria with our children. As part of this they have a video on YouTube as well as more videos for adults.

One day we may win the battle against malaria but until then let's keep spreading the word.
